Woodbridge Tide Mill

Tide Mill Woodbridge
Woodbridge Tide Mill My visit to the Woodbridge Tide Mill was on a particularly damp and drizzly day, but actually once inside, the weather didn't matter so much as I had lots to see and keep me busy whilst sheltering from the rain! I have often glanced at the Tide Mill and to be honest if it wasn't on the Suffolk's Top 50 I probably wouldn't have visited...that's why I love my #Suffolkt...

Abbey Gardens, Bury St Edmunds

Abbey Gardens, Bury St Edmunds
Where to start with Abbey Gardens? I know I say it often but yes this is another of my favorite places in Suffolk! I have got to know Abbey Gardens quite well over recent years...or so I thought. I usually meet one of my best friends there several times a year as it happens to be halfway between where we both live. We grab a coffee and sandwich at the bakery and wander down to the gardens, ...

It was shortly before the Second World War that Ed...

The Operations Room, Debach Airfield Control Tower
It's funny how one of the best days out I have had so far this year is one I stumbled upon by accident! That's exactly what happened at Debach Airfield Museum. On my way to Ipswich I came across an eye-catching sign that made me think.....ooohh I will pop in there on my way back, which is exactly what I did! Not really knowing what to expect, I turned off at the sign and found myself headin...
